There’s still time to register for the Night Photo Summit next weekend, and for the Winter Speaker Series.

The Night Photo Summit online conference takes place February 3rd through 5th. I’ll be joining over 35 other distinguished instructors for this conference, including Albert Dros, Elia Locardi, Royce Bair, Rachel Jones Ross, Katrina Brown, Lance Keimig, Tim Cooper, Susan Magnano, Chris Nicholson, Kevin Adams, and many more. My presentation is about star-stacking – one of the best ways to reduce noise in nighttime photographs.

The first two editions of this conference have been really fun, and I’m looking forward to this weekend! You can learn more and sign up here:

Also, on January 16th I did a presentation for Nature Photography Classes and their Winter Speaker Series. about Masking in Lightroom, and how you can harness this powerful tool to help you express your vision for a photograph. I really enjoyed this session; it was fun to take some of the attendee’s photographs and use Masking to enhance the image’s story.

You can still get access to a recording of that presentation, or sign up for the whole series about image processing, with presentations by Nick Page, Sean Bagshaw, and David Kingham. You can register for these talks individually for $27 each, or register for all four speakers for $87 (which seems like a great bargain). And 10% of the proceeds go to individual charities chosen by the speaker (I’ve chosen the Yosemite Conservancy):
